Grieving Families of Fatal Accident Victims Can Qualify for a Legal Settlement- A Look at Common Wrongful Death and Survival Cases

Comments (0)

When a careless act causes a victim’s death, the family may well have the right to pursue a wrongful death case. It's usually brought by the personal representative of the victim’s estate. The goal of these cases is to compensate grieving family members for the loss of their loved one. South Carolina law created these cases for the benefit of the victim's closest relatives, such as a spouse and children, or parents. 

In addition, the victim's estate may qualify to bring a survival case for compensation for medical and funeral bills, pain, suffering, and mental distress endured by the victim as a result of the accident.

Typical Cases to Prove a Fatal Accident is Wrongful Death to Qualify for a Settlement

Basically, you've got to prove the victim died as a result of an accident caused by someone else's carelessness. Legally, carelessness is defined as "negligence."

It's a sad reality that people die due to the carelessness of others, which is why the law provides for legal settlements when someone dies in an accident caused by someone else. .

These are typical wrongful death and survival cases we see, and the parties compensation can be sought from, who are usually protected by their insurance company that's responsiible for paying any settlement:

And this doesn't cover every posible case. If you suspect carelessness caused the death of someone you love, you owe it to your own peace of mind to find out if you have legal rights that could provide needed financial benefits - and possibly prevent this from happening to someone else.

This is Not the Time to Go It Alone

There's too much at stake, and you're too wounded to take on the insurance company yourself- don't play into their hands. There are truly good reasons you'll be better served by discussing the case with a professional who can guide you through the process and answer your questions.
